This quarterly examines how Rutlanders chose May 10th, as the date to visit every class in school in the city to discuss the Declaration of Independence of Vermont. This was a very big event at the time. Many individuals were assigned to classrooms with copies of the Vermont Declaration of Independence, where it was read and discussed with the students. Meanwhile, others gathered around the statue of the Green Mountain Boy in federal park for ceremonies that were being held. In 1791, Vermont was admitted as the 14th state.
